Down the Garden Path

There's nothing like a well-defined path to dress up a garden. If your flower beds are well-framed, it doesn't seem to matter as much what you plant--it all seems to pull together nicely in the end. I think, however, you are meant to design the garden and lay out the foundation first. I usually rush in and start planting furiously, and then star deciding about paths and borders.
We purchased flagstones and pebbles to create our paths in our front garden. Rocks of any size are a real treat around here, as there are no rocks anywhere around here. Beneath the thin veneer of topsoil is nothing but white sand in this area. It was a lot of work. Some of the stones weighed almost 100 pounds, but in the end well worth the effort.
